Three masked Edinburgh youths on back of motorbike 'cause havoc' on busy road

Three Edinburgh youths have been captured riding on the back of a motorbike weaving in and out of traffic on a busy road.

Various residents near Balerno, on the outskirts of the capital, came across the group on Wednesday night, June 19, with their faces covered riding 'dangerously'.

A local reported seeing the bike on Cherry Park Road before a second resident uploaded footage online of the youths riding down Lanark Road in between vehicles caught in traffic.
